Russia continues steady gas supply to Europe via Ukraine

Gazprom, the Russian energy giant, continues to supply Europe with gas via Ukraine, with a daily volume of 41.95 million cubic metres (mcm) as of March 31, 2024, according to a company representative cited by TASS.

The gas is being pumped through the Sudzha station in Russia’s Kursk Region. However, a request to pump gas through the Sokhranovka station was turned down by Ukraine.

On the previous day, March 30, the volume of gas pumped was slightly higher at 42.2 mcm. Earlier, the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) had indicated that the transit volume of Russian gas to Europe could be around 42 m3 on February 4.

Currently, the transit line through Ukraine is the only route for supplying Russian gas to Western and Central Europe. The Nord Stream pipeline has ceased operations completely.

Meanwhile, gas deliveries via the TurkStream and Blue Stream pipelines are directed towards Turkey and countries in South and Southeastern Europe.
